Most CH E courses are offered only once a year. It is essentail to take them in the semester shown.

Engineering majors may waive 6 units of General Education (Categories D.2 and B.1.a or C.3 or E)

The degree can be completed in 131 units only if the student uses BIOL 211A or MICR 200 in Semester 4 and an ECON GE class in Semester 8. Otherwise two additional GE courses are required.

* The degree requirement of "a course in economics" can be satisfied by any ECON course (can meet a GE requirement) or by CE 406 (Engineering Economics).(counts as major elective.)

A list of Approved Engineering Electives is available in the department office. Engineering elective can be waived if student passes FE Exam.

**CHEM 327(3 units) plus approved laboratory science class (min. 4 units) may be substituted for CHEM 320A&B (8 units).
